I started Nordic walking in March 2017, at that time, I was looking for an activity that would help me to lose weight and get fitter whilst being out and about in the great outdoors. As a psychiatric nurse, I have always had a special interest in the mood enhancing benefits of being outside in the countryside amidst nature, and walking in the great outdoors gives our senses the opportunity to reconnect with the world around us.

When I first began Nordic walking I never imagined the impact that it would have on my life, I have lost weight, become considerably fitter and have a new zest for life. Nordic walking offers something for everyone, irrespective of age or ability, and, as an instructor, I will be able to support people to meet their fitness goals and feel the joy of getting fitter and healthier within a sociable and friendly environment.

I will be leading walks around the countryside of the beautiful city of Worcester down to Pershore as well as delivering Learn To Nordic Walk sessions in Worcester.
